A: I couldn't understand much deeper meaning of the song but what I think is that the lyricist wants to convey that he is sad or something and he can't feel happiness/positivity around him.
So he wants people to accept him and share their happiness with him. Since there are many such people like him who are the "happy" people must choose him/elect him among others to accept him(lyricist). He's kind of pleading them :)

If you want it to sound proper, try " I'm not good at English, so please be kind."

1.Why is 'Was' at the beginning?
2.Is this sentence an interrogative one?
3.Which is a subject of the sentence from 'Was' to 'all in all'?
4.lyrics doesn't have periods. so how should I understand if a sentence or a phrase at end of the sentence connects to a new line sentence?

Thank you.
A: I looked up the lyrics - the first word "was" is actually "worked," so "Worked all the summer, and all the fall..." But there is an "I" before "worked," which is left out because we understand that the speaker is talking about himself from context. That omitted "I" is the subject of the sentence.

Tell the sweetest story line
Your tears on these sheets
And your footsteps are down the hall
So tell me what I did
I can't find where the moment went wrong at all
